Budget Homeschool Newsletter

This is the very first edition of the Budget Homeschool Newsletter. Due to the recent developments with hurricane Katrina, I know many of us have been discussing it at home and following the news reports. As such, I've gathered some wonderful weather sites to assist your eager children in learning more about hurricane's and the weather around us.
A few facts on: Hurricane Classification
Hurricanes are classified into five categories, based on their wind speeds and potential to cause damage.
